Quick blueberry oat muffins to start off the day or pack into a lunch, full of healthy whole grain oats and berries.
Even if you’re a minimalist when it comes to baking, you probably have all the ingredients on hand to bake a quick batch of these blueberry oat muffins.
They’re dairy-free and loaded with healthy berries and whole grain oats.
I’m personally more of a savory breakfast eater, but sometimes I’ll wake up and crave something warm and fruity.
Fresh and healthful homemade blueberry muffins
That usually means a bowl of oatmeal or a batch of these muffins, which don’t require much fussing to make.
Not to say that every once in a while a jumbo bakery-style blueberry streusel muffin is out of the question – of course not!
But when you’re in the mood for a wholesome whole grain muffin, this is a great recipe to save.
Blueberry oat muffins are not too sweet.
The sparkling flakes of turbinado sugar sprinkled on top of the muffins add crunch and just a touch of sweetness.
The recipe couldn’t be easier — mix up the batter in minutes. If you have one bowl and a mixing spoon you’ll be good to go!
By the time the house wakes up, these blueberry muffins will be warm from the oven and ready to eat.

Karen’s Notes and Tips
- If you don’t have fresh blueberries on hand, frozen berries work beautifully. Just measure them out and let them thaw for about 15 minutes.
- Make these muffins gluten-free with your favorite store-bought gluten-free flour blend.
